Found a stack of unopened #LitsyLove mail that I am hoping to get through by the end of the month. I think my problem is I don‘t open them til I am ready to write back 🤪 #LL

A murdery audiobook needs a murdery @FrostbeardMPLS candle 🕯️ Nearly finished with this one and just how I felt when I read the first one I feel like I need more Australian author recs 😄

Bookzombie I really enjoyed this 4 book series. I listened to them on audio. Not as funny as the Ernest books, more dark like a Jane Harper book. 1mo
MatchlessMarie @Bookzombie thanks for the rec! 🙏 1mo

I apologize that I haven‘t been posting very consistently on here. But I wanted to pop in for an update. I did get to visit the Libros Book Lounge I posted about previously for the first time tonight and it was lovely. I wish I had gotten more photos to share, but the thing is… I‘m awkward and self conscious 😂 I loved it and I will be back. 🖤📖🦇

MatchlessMarie Their IG page has more photos @ libros_sa 2mo
Ruthiella Sounds neat. Was it conducive to reading? 2mo
TheBookgeekFrau I just gave them a follow on ig - looks like a cool place!! 2mo
MatchlessMarie @Ruthiella I think so. There is music but it‘s not distractingly loud. The layout is not like an actual bar/lounge. It‘s literally a house that was converted. The backyard has picnic tables and there are several rooms that have different reading arrangements. So you can move to a more secluded spot if needed. But they do also offer wifi/board games/movies in a certain room. It‘s dim to match the vibe but there are reading lamps throughout. 2mo

March picks #ReadYourKindle

Since the #ReadYourKindle numbers have been posted I can share my #BookSpin / #DoubleSpin picks for March since my DoubleSpin was a ReadYourKindle catch all category. I was so excited that Devil of Dublin was fated to be my BookSpin that I actually already finished reading it. Absolutely loved it. I will be buying a physical copy at some point because I need to own it. BB Easton is working on the sequel right now and I can‘t wait. 😈🇮🇪

CBee Awesome! Both of my spin picks were #readyourkindle choices 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo

What are the odds… I finally started this one and didn‘t realize there was a leap day reference in it 😆

monalyisha I think to determine the odds correctly, you have to divide by 4…but not if it‘s also divisible by 100 but *definitely* do so if it‘s divisible by 400. Or something like that. 😆 3mo

This was announced in January but I haven‘t checked it out yet but it‘s a really awesome idea. Originally it was only open from 2-5am but hours have been extended. I wonder if there are any other Texan littens who have checked it out? Link to the original article below.

Bookzombie @Reggie I know! Although we have a lot of independent bookstores up here now, several opened after we moved. None dedicated to horror though. There is a silent reading club that meets at different locations I haven‘t tried yet. 3mo

I finished the Improbable Meet Cute series this morning. This is my ranking 1 being my favorite and 6 being my least favorite. I wouldn‘t say any of these stories were terrible though. I also love how there is a reference to a character from book 1 in book 6 but none of these stories are actually interconnected and can be read in any order. #ReadYourKindle #SeriesLove2024 #ReadAway2024

Finished my 2nd book for #AuldLangSpine. This one is short but was so moving and powerful. It feels heavy but in the way that a weighted blanket feels. I can see myself recommending this one a lot. Reads as a poetry memoir of sorts with lots of self-healing. I think anyone would benefit from reading it, but perhaps especially those who have experienced their own crisis of faith. ⛪️🏳️‍⚧️ #ReadAway2024

MatchlessMarie Also the transition tone on the audio reminded me of the intro to Infinitely Ordinary by The Wrecks which kind of fits in with the tone of the book. Check it out 💜 https://open.spotify.com/track/2IWWOWS7n00wpz1ewqEC8w?si=I-ygH9xMQRWgX0pA6YJ0Zw 4mo

Read the top one yesterday and the tagged book today. Ironically I popped into a dollar tree and found the top book when I was avoiding going on a walk because it was so windy 😂 🌬️ Tagged book is about a giant terrorizing a small village till an even bigger giant comes along and give him a taste of his own medicine. #ReadAway2024

Finished this audio on Tuesday. Blue Nose Audio production value is *chefs kiss*. I have been wanting to branch out a little more since I don‘t usually read books with fantasy elements in them. This one was great for someone like me who finds books like that intimidating to start. This is the first of a trilogy so adding on to the #SeriesLove2024 pile. Book 2 is already queued up for February if I can wait that long 😂 #ReadAway2024

Finished my first 2024 #AuldLangSpine book today which was also my January #DoubleSpin. The premise of this book was very clever. It kind of reminded me of a cross between Good Omens and Dead Like Me but layered on top of a thriller. I think this book will stay with me for a while. Would be a good discussion book for a buddy read I think. #JoyousJanuary #ReadAway2024

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 4mo
monalyisha That sounds kind of weird and fun. Thrillers aren‘t typically my thing but I might look into this one! 4mo

Been sleeping on this series. This one was so good. My first “I don‘t need sleep, I need to read my book” read of the year 😂 Gavin‘s marriage is in trouble and his friends approach him with their secret book club where they read between the lines of romance books to mend their relationships to help fix his before it‘s too late. Lots of humor and heart in this one too. ❤️‍🩹#SeriesLove2024

Meant to post this at the beginning of the month when we first put up our tree. Do you spy the book ornaments? 😜

1 - Favorite - ahhh so hard to choose. Undoctored by Adam Kay was my favorite non-fiction. But a year end favorite I haven‘t raved about yet on here was The Anti-Hero by Sara Cate. Recommend for fans of the Priest series by Sierra Simone.

2 - Least favorite - The Boy with The Bookstore by Sarah Echavarre Smith ⬇️

MatchlessMarie 3 - other than finish reading books and try to find some fireworks to watch with the kiddo not really.

4 - nah
5 - Texans are traumatized by the winter storm of 2021 so I am fine with a Christmas in the 40s/50s lol

Sorry I kind of fell off the Litsy map the past week. I think one of my goals for 2024 is to be more consistently active on Litsy. 😜

The last couple of years I usually spend NYE driving around with my kiddo catching fireworks where we find them because crowds here are for the birds. And watching When Harry Met Sally.. And as always I spend NYE trying to squeeze as many last minute books as possible lol #WinterGames #TeamReindeerGamers

So excited to open my #JolabokaflodSwap package today. I adore Matthew Gray Gubler and can‘t wait to read his latest. Also Land O Lakes or as I call it LOL 😂 hot cocoa is my favorite. Looking forward to trying the Hawaiian chocolate, especially the passion fruit. A couple years back when I was making the waitress pies I made a chocolate one with passion fruit so I know it‘s a great combo. Happy holidays!!!

DebinHawaii Yay! I‘m glad you will enjoy it! I thought the book looked so cute as I was wrapping it. I‘m a MGG fan too from Criminal Minds but didn‘t realize he wrote books. Merry Christmas! 🎄 💚 5mo
